Comfort, 2009. Performance
“My mother passed away on September 18, 2008, after a year and a half of fighting cancer. During her time of sickness, I would regularly give her hand and foot massages. The act of touching gave us comfort at a time when nothing was left to be said.”
The artist will be giving massages to willing participants. You may choose to receive either a hand or foot massage, or both. If you would like a foot massage, please remove your shoes, wipe your feet with wet wipes and put on the slippers provided. The artist will motion you to enter when she is ready. She will remain silent during the massage, and will tap your shoulder when she is finished.
You are welcome to leave comments in the notebook provided.
